Nikon Patent - Lens with Touch and Pressure Sensor

The New Camera Exclusive – Nikon is working on completely new technology. We have spotted a Nikon Lens with Touch and Pressure Sensor.  So, you can now zoom your lens with the touch of your hand. Future DSLR/ Mirrorless lenses may carry advance sensor controls.

 

Nikon lens with touch sensors

Description: (Translated Version) To allow a lens position when a hand is released from a lens barrel to be held.SOLUTION: A lens barrel 10 of a digital camera 1 comprises: a barrel that houses an imaging optical system 20; and touch sensors 12, 14 and 16 that are provided in a periphery of the barrel, and detect a state where an operator contacts with respect to the barrel or a contactless state. When the touch sensors 12, 14 and 16 detect the contact, a CPU 32 allows a zoom lens 21, a focus lens 23 and an aperture stop 25 which correspond to each sensor to move or open/close, and when the touch sensors 12, 14 and 16 do not detect the contact, the CPU 32 locks the movement of the zoom lens 21 and the focus lens 23 or the opening/closing of the aperture stop 25 via a locking section 34.

Application number: JP20130049952 20130313
Priority number(s): JP20130049952 20130313

New camera tocuh sensor

(Translated version ) In a digital camera equipped with a retractable lens, when a pressure sensor is attached to the grip portion of the digital camera and it is detected by the pressure sensor that the camera is in a non-gripping state from the state of gripping the camera, the camera is falling (For example, refer to Japanese Unexamined Patent Application, First Publication No. Hei 11-94926). In this technique, the lens is collapsed to prevent breakage.

[0009] The zoom ring 11 is an operation ring that manually moves the zoom lens in its optical axis direction. The zoom ring touch sensor 12 is a sensor that detects contact of an object by detecting changes in electrostatic capacitance and electric resistance. The zoom ring touch sensor 12 is provided on the zoom ring 11 and can detect contact with the zoom ring 11. It should be noted that the zoom ring touch sensor 12 may be provided in the vicinity of the zoom ring 11 with a high possibility of being touched when operating the zoom ring 11.

[0010] The focus ring 13 is an operation ring for manually moving the focus lens in its optical axis direction. Similarly to the zoom ring touch sensor 12, the focus ring touch sensor 14 is a sensor for detecting contact of an object. The focus ring touch sensor 14 is provided on the focus ring 13 and can detect contact with the focus ring 13. It should be noted that the focus ring touch sensor 14 may be provided in the vicinity of the focus ring 13 with a high possibility of being touched when operating the focus ring 13.

Nikon Mirrorless Coming at CP+ 2018 Show and more...

CP plus show 2018

We haven’t seen any major announcement from Nikon this year at CES show.  well at CES Nikon was silent but we don’t expect Nikon we’re going to remain silent during the CP Plus event at march.

Take a look at the list of product we are expecting from Nikon this March or during the CP Plus event

Nikon at CP+ Event March 2018

  •  Nikon mirrorless camera system announcement
    Nikon will going to announce its APS-C sensor based DX format mirrorless camera during the CP Plus event or near about that. Thom Hogan (Nikon pro photographer)  predict few month ago that Nikon will going to start its mirrorless announcement with APS-C mirrorless camera in the beginning of 2018 or may be CP+ event and after that during the September (Photokina 2018) we will going to see full-frame mirrorless system announcement with lenses.
  • Nikon entry level DSLR Nikon D650
    Nikon D650 announcement is overdue. The upcoming Nikon entry level DSLR will going to feature 4K and advance core specification. We, are confirmed Nikon will  introduce 4K 24/30p in Nikon entry level fullframe  DSLR camera D650.

We are almost confirmed that Nikon APS-C sensor based mirrorless camera as well as Nikon full frame entry level DSLR during the CP Plus  event on march 2018.

 Now the list you see below is the list of expected camera from Nikon that will going to arrive this year no time frame is fixed then answer and may happen during the month of March maybe in June of  2018.

Upcoming Camera from Nikon

  • Nikon P1000 – Code Name N1622
    Nikon Mega zoom camera update is overdue, Nikon skipped the update of Nikon P900 last year. Nikon P1000 is coming for sure,  but its announcement may happen during the CP Plus event or maybe at June 2018.  We have already seen 100 + compact zoom lens patent from Nikon so we are expecting next Nikon Mega zoom camera when going to carry 100X plus zoom lens or maybe 125X optical zoom lens as we have seen in the patent.
  •  Nikon D750 successor (Nikon D750 MK II / Nikon D760)
    The name of the Nikon D750 successor is  isn’t confirm yet.  So,  the upcoming camera name could be Nikon D750 mark 2 or Nikon D760.  Nikon D750 was one of the most popular Camera among mid-range or semi Pro Shooters.  And ofcourse one of the most sold full frame Nikon camera of all time. We are not expecting the announcement of Nikon D750 successor this March, but its announcement may happen during the month of June or September of 2018.  We do believe that Nikon D 750 successor will going to carry advanced auto focusing system as of Nikon D5,  as well as completely new 24 megapixel FX format sensor with the introduction of 4K video.
  • Nikon D3500 – We are almost confirmed about the announcement of the Nikon entry level DSLR in 2018, but at the same time we also suspect that Nikon is delaying the camera to bring out some serious specification inside it.  At the moment we can confirm one thing the camera will have 24 MP DX sensor inside it, the predecessor Nikon D3400 have a  traditional contrast detect sensor.
  •  Nikon DL compacts
    Re-announcement of Nikon DL compact is also possible this year but no time frame is expected at the moment.

So, these when our expectation with the Nikon. And we are almost confirmed that Nikon Mirrorless systems Announcement will going to happen during the CP Plus show. And also the Nikon entry level full frame DSLR announcement is overdue for a long time, so we are also expecting Nikon D650 announcement during the event.
